Sponsor Spotlight: Smile Generation 

We are honored to highlight our partnership with The Smile Generation throughout St. Louis. This relationship started in 2017 and continues today. Through online fundraisers and corporate contributions, they contributed more than $11,000 to benefit athletes who participate in the Special Olympics Missouri Healthy Athlete program. Twenty volunteers from The Smile Generation took time to participate in our local games, bringing dental screenings to 182 athletes in the St. Louis and Kansas City metro areas.  A special gift was given to each of the athletes who participated in Healthy Athlete’s Special Smiles program. Athletes were then welcomed into their practices where they would have access to oral healthcare. As a true partner, they helped spread the word through social media, provided speaking engagement opportunities for our athletes, volunteered their time to local school activities, and much more. We celebrate them as an advocate for individuals with intellectual disabilities and look forward to strengthening our partnership. Thank you to The Smile Generation for your dedication to Special Olympics Athletes.
